Practical Scrappers DT Project-Sew Fun

Hello Krafters,

Today over at Practical Scrappers, we are having "sew" much fun today! Yep, you guessed it! It is all about sewing notations today! Pop over by Practical Scrappers to see the DT's creations!

For my project, I used the Imagine and a piece of G45's A Ladies Diary for the pattern paper. The measuring tape and the stitching came from the Heirloom stack by DCWV. I stamped the dress form with Momento (brown) ink. I added a button to it.  To continue on with the theme of sewing, I added a few charms I had in my stash. I also decided to use a stick pin to add a finished look.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thank you all for stopping by! Krafthead~

Practical Scrappers DT Project: Notebook Doodles

Hi Krafters!

Can you believe school is starting soon! Where did the summer go? I know it will be one to remember as the heat has been off the charts! Not complaining though~

Today I am sharing my project for Practical Scrappers! I had so much fun doing this one J We had to make a school related project! Go over and check out the inspiration! Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!

For this project, I used the Notebook Doodles Imagine cartridge. I *heart* that cartridge! Anywho, I printed the notebook page pattern and the pattern with the letters. The printed papers are layered on a piece of white cardstock that was embossed using the Collage Sizzix folder. The“ABC123” border was punched with a punch by EK Success. I also added some basic shapes to make a more elementary type design (hey my girls are in elementary school LOL).
The embellishments were fussy cut from the Me & My Big Idea Elementary stack. To finish off the design, I stamped “school” and “a day in the life” from some stamps I have in my stash. I almost forgot, the printed paper looked plain so I punched the notebook edge from another punch by EK Success J

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Don’t forget to pop over to Practical Scrappers for more inspiration!

*I also wanted to say thank you to all of my new and existing followers! If I am not following you, please let me know so I can follow you as well! Thank you J

SOC DT Project: Try, Try & Try Again-You Go Girl!

Hello Everyone!

My daughter is vertically challenged and I would have to help her up the ladder so she can play on the slide. This particular day we were at the playground she was determined to do it by herself. I was so happy I could capture her victory (even though the pictures are not the greatest)! Looking at her that day made me realize life is full of risks. She could have fallen down and hurt herself. That was my worry, but obviously not hers. That was inspiration for this project!

Crafting can be risky too. You can have a project failure or a project success. I used wood grain paper and different pattern papers which is something that would have frightened me a year ago. Honestly, I had to try, try, and try again before I was satisfied with this layout. Considering this layout is not “my style” I would put this in the success pile!

The papers came from different stacks by DCWV. I hand cut the different pattern papers to mimic the waves in the slide. The doily is from the WRMK Lucky 8 Tattered Doily Punch. I cut the slide from the Playground Equipment digital cartridge on Cricut Craft Room which doubled as the journaling spot. The title was cut on the Silhouette. The flowers are I Am Roses and the butterflies were made from a punch by Martha Stewart.

What crafting risks have you taken or do you want to take? Is it a new technique or papers you usually don’t use? Whatever your risk is, remember to try, try, and try again….you will succeed! Stop by Scraps of Color for more project inspiration! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

BossKut DT Project

Hello Krafters!

Krafthead here to share two cards using the newly released Loopy Doily! This card can be massed produced in the matter of minutes! For the base of the card, I made a shadow (4.2”) of the doily and welded it to a rectangle which measures 4.25”x5.5”.  Once the base is folded in half, it will be a standard A2 sized card (4.2”).

The gold card, the Loopy Doily’s top layer was embossed with gold embossing powder to match the pattern paper. I also embossed the sentiment. The pearls were colored with the Golden Yellow Copic Marker (can be purchased at The butterflies were punched in the same pattern paper on the base of the card. I added pearls to the center.

For the yellow and white card, in conjunction with the Loopy Doily, I used the newly released RufflesPKButterfly. The butterfly is mounted on the center cut which was dry embossed to add texture. I decided not to add a sentiment to this one. To finish it off, I added pearls to the RufflesPKButterfly and a pearl flourish. I also added pearls to the base of the card to pull everything together. 

That is it for today! I really hope you enjoyed today’s cards. Don’t forget to pop on over to for ALL of the files, supplies and to check out other projects from the talented DT! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

**Please note, I suggest lining the shadow to the top layer to make sure the loops line up correctly before applying adhesive!

Hi Krafters,

I made a vow to try to keep my blog updated at least three times a week. I like to upload new projects for inspiration. After much consideration, I have made the decision to take some time off. I am going through a difficult time right now and I do not foresee much crafting happening (for a short time I hope). However, I do have DT projects coming up J  Until I get a definitive answer on my dad’s condition, I will be sharing some various projects until I can create again!

I hope to be able to visit some blogs from time to time!

Thank you so much for following me! Until next time, Krafthead~

Practical Scrappers DT Project: Wild Child

Hi Krafters,

Today, I am sharing another Practical Scrappers design team project. The theme today is using notebook paper, ledger, stickers or so on! Make sure to stop by the blog to see some FANTASTIC projects!
I was looking through some photos and found this. I began to reminisce. My daughter loved to get her hair washed, but hated to get it combed. This is her trying to run away from getting her hair done. She was too funny! She was two years old in this photo.

I have really been into the whole Polaroid thing. I fussy cut this one from the paper stack! I think it reminds me of my grandmother's old camera! I can remember when that was so cool. You can get your photos right on the spot. I loved seeing the image emerge. I can even remember the smell.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Thank you so much for stopping by, Krafthead~

Bow Wow!

Hi Krafters!
Today I am sharing some simple ATCs for a swap I participated in over at The theme I chose was the dog/cat category. I had a lot of fun making these!

The dog houses and bones were cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. I fussy cut the hydrant from the Pets Stack by DCWV. The fence is Martha Stewart punch. I took some faux fur (an old baby blanket) to emulate a dog sleeping in the dog house. I added some bling to be the dog’s collar.

Short post today! I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
